### abstract

• Given a collection of $l$ general lines $\ell_1,\ldots,\ell_{l}$ in $\pr^2$, the star configuration $\XX(l)$ is the set of points constructed from all pairwise intersections of these lines. For each non-negative integer $d$, we compute the dimension of the family of curves of degree $d$ that contain a star configuration.
